  1. The first short story, Abbreviations Alliterations, features Casey from The DUFF, when she starts to date Toby, Bianca s ex The major conflict of the short story comes in with Casey feeling like she is braking girlcode by dating Toby, since he is a friend s ex There are both secrets and lies in this one I loved this story it was so fun and I read straight through in on a train ride into the city during BEA It was lovely Casey is such a fun character who uses a few too many abbreviations She is s [...]


  2. The first book, Abbreviations and Alliterations, was from Casey s point of you and I m so glad her love life worked out in the end After just finishing Lying Out Loud I did see some similarity between the two but still loved it The second book, People Worth Knowing, was from Bailey s point of view and I was so proud of her for sticking up to the bully and doing what was right She was worried that Brody wouldn t like her but it pays to be yourself


  3. It was actually better than I thought it would be.I saw this on , and the description was very vague so it didn t appeal that much to me Also because I forgot the other characters from the other books So I got to scanning the books again to remember the characters But it s actually quite good The first one is about Casey and Toby Tucker from DUFF Designated Ugly Fat Friend Who could have thought, huh Casey, Bianca s tall, cheerleader friend, and Toby, Bianca s geeky ex, who she dated for like a [...]


  4. Ever since I read The Duff I have wanted to dive into this book One reason is because the first story has to deal with Casey, who is one of Bianca s best friends She is dealing with a major conflict dating Toby, who just happens to be Bianca s ex Why is this a major problem for her Because Casey feels like she is breaking some type of crazy girl code In my opinion she isn t because Bianca is very happy with her boyfriend So yeah, I didn t really care about her dating Toby or whatever but I just [...]


  5. What a quick and delightful read I thoroughly enjoyed reading this it was fun, quick, and did have good lessons in there There are two short stories in this book One is about Casey from the DUFF and the other is about Bailey from a midsummer s nightmare Casey s story is about how she find outs out she has a crush on Toby Bianca s ex She feels terrible about liking him and decided to keep the relationship between the two of them a secret Eventually she is honest with everybody about her relations [...]


  6. Cute as always Love it.This consists of a novella from THE DUFF Designated Ugly Fat Friend and THE MIDSUMMER S NIGHTMARE which both book I really enjoyed I was thrilled to know there s a sneak peak to these books because I couldn t help but wonder what happened after all these crazy and its lovely endings Although it is set in a different persons POV, how they see these couples is totally worth it Love.Love.Love.



  7. In Spring 2013, Little Brown will be releasing a collection of 3 short stories each about 5 or 6 chapters long , featuring characters from my other books Squee One story is about Casey from THE DUFF, and it s a story I ve wanted to tell since I wrote the book but had no outlet for, so I m SO EXCITED to finally get a chance to tell Casey s story Another story is about Bailey from A MIDSUMMER S NIGHTMARE And the third is about Julie a character you will meet in Goldfish and it serves as sort of a [...]




  8. Secrets Lies features two short novella s by author Kody Keplinger If you are not familiar with this author in the young adult world, then I highly recommend that you start with The D.U.F.F I will also warn you that this authors writing is highly addictive Once you read one book by Ms Keplinger, you will not want to stop at one.Novella One Abbreviations AlliterationsThe main characters featured in novella one are Casey Blithe and Toby Tucker If you have read The DUFF then you know that Casey is [...]


  9. I ve been reading all of Kody s books, so it s only natural that I read this As you probably know, this is nade up of two stories, one set after The Duff, following Casey, Bianca s friend, and the other set after Midsummer0s Nightmare, following Bailey, Nathan s younger sister.Neither of the stories blew me away, to be honest, but I liked the first beetter than the second I really liked knowing Casey, and I thought Kody made a clever move by pairing her with Toby I actually found them both reall [...]


  10. This was worth reading if you have read The Duff and A Midsummer s Nightmare The first short story is about Casey from The Duff She comes home for Christmas vacation and falls for her best friends ex boyfriend, Toby Tucker I thought it was okay, but I definitely enjoyed the second story The second story featured Bailey from A Midsummer s Nightmare I loved that Nathan and Whitley were in the story as well Bailey tries to fit in at her new high school and in the process helps ruin another girls r [...]


  11. So excited for these stories From Kody s blog One story is about Casey from THE DUFF, and it s a story I ve wanted to tell since I wrote the book but had no outlet for, so I m SO EXCITED to finally get a chance to tell Casey s story Another story is about Bailey from A MIDSUMMER S NIGHTMARE And the third is about Julie a character you will meet in Goldfish and it serves as sort of a prequel to the book.The collection doesn t have a title just yet, but the theme is secrets.


  12. This novella was just like the books Kody writes Maybe a novella like this doesn t really deserve 5 stars, but I always really enjoy the way Kody Keplinger writes light and fun stories with a little deeper message It s not anything really deep, but it has a good message in it, just like her books I also really liked coming back to the same characters you get to know in The DUFF and A Midsummer s Nightmare Anyone who needs a light and fluffy contemporary where you don t need to think to much and [...]


  13. Secrets lies son dos cuentos cortos de Kody Keplinger, donde nuevamente nos encontramos con los personajes de The Duff y A Midsummer Nightmare, los protagonistas son los secundarios en esta ocasion.Estas historias lo que recalcan es el dano que podemos realizar a otras personas hablando mentiras sobre ellas y guardando secretos que en ocasiones debemos decirlo para no continuar haciendo dano a otros.Dos historias muy cortas y bien light que te dejan como los cuentos con moraleja y finales felice [...]


  14. I really enjoyed the book, especially the first part, because I got to know a little bit about Bianca s new relationship and also got to know Casey better I totally like Toby, he is the role model of a great guy and friend, lucky C for having him It was a very pleasant read and I just couldn t stop reading It was just like with the first book all over again So thanks to Kody Keplinger for writing these amazing stories.


  15. this is a 3.5 for me the first short story Abbreviations Alliterations was my favorite of the two but then I LOVE the DUFF and all it s characters and AA deals with older kids so it s a little mature too, which I think is a big part of why I liked it better People Worth Knowing is characters from A Midsummers Nightmare the story is about Nathan s little sister Bailey although the subject is very timely, it was a lot oh high school drama for me, but still a good story if you re a Kody Fan like I [...]


  16. 2 Cute stories that follow on from The Duff Designated Ugly Fat Friend A Midsummer s Nightmare involving side characters from both.The first one with Toby Tucker was especially good, I really enjoyed it


  17. I really like the first story because of Casey from the DUFF so it was like the continuation in her POV The second one not so much You can t get rid of drama.


  18. The novellas leave you wanting from these characters, who were supporting ones in Keplinger s The DUFF and A Midsummer s Nightmare I shouldn t fault a short story on being short, but at the same rate, I couldn t feel 100% satisfied with these small glimpses into Casey and Bailey s lives I hope she revisits these characters soon.


  19. Quick read, good if you ve read the DUFF and a Midsummer s Nightmare The stories are too short to develop a real plot but it s good to read a little into the lives of the other characters in the other books Definitely read the other 2 before this one if you do choose to read the book.


  20. AA It s Casey s story from The Duff I miss Wesley and B I wanna read about them So anyway, Casey s keeping something from everybody especially to B Wanna know what is it Then all you have to do is Read it Lol PWK ala Mean Girls I just hope I get to know about Brody.


  21. This rating is for Abbreviations Alliterations only.Very cute story about Casey, Bianca s best friend in the Duff and Toby, a shy, quiet guy Bianca dated briefly There s a nice lesson about keeping secrets from your best friend as well definitely worth the quick read.


  22. La verdad, ni pareciera un libro de Kody Totalmente innecesario el relato porque es demasiado breve 5 o 6 cap tulos cada historia eran 2 as que todo va demasiado r pido y sin cuestionamientos.




  23. This was actually a really fun idea I loved just kinda checking in with everyone This makes me really excited for Lying Out Loud


  24. I love anything written by Kody because she brings out new stories and we see past characters again with updates with there relationship
